Child Labour and Hazardous Work

Child Labour and Hazardous Work

Today 73 million children are in hazardous work undermining their health, safety and moral development.

Dangerous and prevalent risk sectors include agriculture and mining where products manufactured or extracted by engaging child labour are exported to developed countries. This year, the ILO marks the World Day Against Child Labour to highlight the importance to improve the safety and health of young workers and end child labour for a Generation Safe & Healthy.
